Friday’s Fave Five


Susanne at Living to Tell the Story hosts a “Friday Fave Five” in which we share our five favorite things from the past week. Click on the button to read more of the details, and you can visit Susanne to see the list of others’ favorites.

1. Some of the friends my middle son, Jason, had worked with at camp last summer were in town for a wedding. One stayed with us and the others were over one day playing the Wii Fit. I enjoyed meeting them!

2. Lunch at the Golden Corral. Sometimes for lunch we get take-out boxes, which they let you fill up from the buffet and then charge you by weight. We had plenty for lunch Thursday and Friday. I love their meat loaf, pot roast, and chocolate chess pie. I am so looking forward to having the leftovers for lunch!!

(My list seems to always include food items!)

3. The last day of school today!!!! I am going to miss my quiet hours at home, but I am going to love not having to set the alarm clock ad having a more laid-back pace.

4. My semi-annual closet changeover. I had gotten a few springy clothes down from the attic a few weeks ago, but it wasn’t until this week that I transferred the winter clothes up to the attic and the summer clothes down to the closet. It was almost like getting together with old friends. 🙂 I love the lighter look in my closet!

5. This quote I scribbled across a church bulletin and rediscovered when cleaning out my Bible. I neglected to put down who said it: I don’t remember if it was my pastor or a guest speaker:

Doubt puts circumstances between us and God. Faith puts God between us and circumstances.

Bonus: I saw this cute routine on TV some years back and just rediscovered it on You Tube:

  1. i have heard glorious things about the golden corral restaurants, but we don’t have them up here… i suppose i should thank the Lord, eh;)

  2. Your fff’s are excellant. I like the one about food, and the video was funny.

    I loved the quote as well. Doubt causes so many problems for us sometimes. I enjoyed your post about sin also.

    Have a blessed day and thank you for stopping by my blog and commenting.

  3. We love Golden Corral as well. I love their fried chicken. 😦

    I laughed when I read that you are too much of a germaphobe to use cloth napkins.

    Do you wash your bathroom towel each time after you use it? My parents do, but we only wash ours once a week if, that.

  4. ROFLMBO! I have never seen that guy with his pig – but that was HYSTERICAL!

    Why do we associate so many of our good times with FOOD? This is a habit we need to break! I’ve tried… but food just always gets in the way! This was another truly fabulous list today!

  5. Ah, food. It is a truly a gift from God. (I always feel sorry for people who lose their sense of taste.) Chocolate chess pie? Sounds delightful.

    I love the quote, too. I’ll copy that one down!

  6. Great FFF. No more school…for a least a while…hooraay LOL. I loved the video. Oooh no more alarm clock for a while…you aren’t going to know what to do with yourself…well I bet you do LOL. Lunch sounded great. Have a great Friday 🙂

  7. Hey, we love Golden Corral. My nephew used to say that when he grew up, he was going to work at Golden Corral so that he could have all the fried okra he wanted.

    Loved the clip about Paquito! I love Bananas!

    Great quote. I need to copy it down.

  8. Some people have all the luck! School does not finish before the end of June here!

    I loved the man withhis piggy puppet, too funny!
    Have a great weekend, and a wonderful week!

  9. Ah, Golden Corral! We haven’t been to one in a long time – sounds delicious!

    Absolutely loved the video. Sent it right out to my dh and kids! LOL

  10. I love that quote about doubt.

    My spring closet makes me want new clothes… I still wear some of my maternity shirts from my 5-year-old (tucked in!)

    Enjoy the bliss of your first few days without alarm clocks!

  11. You’ll enjoy this summer with your family around. It’ll change soon.

    I still celebrate birthdays. I just didn’t want to make a fuss on blogland.

  12. Each season has its good points. I love my slower mornings during school breaks, but I do miss the students (and the paycheck).

    Have another good week!

  13. Hi Barbara,
    Ha! My Friday’s seem to always be filled with food!!
    Sounds like a good week. It is refreshing to take out the old and bring in the new :0)
    Have a wonderful weekend…

  14. Wonderful FFF’s, Barbara! Esp. the Golden Corral! There is one about 30 miles away from here and we just may have to take the drive over before long! Have a great weekend!
    Loved the quote!

  15. How fun to get to meet and have your son’s friends over. I always love that kind of thing.

    Love the quote.

    And don’t worry, more often than not I seem to have some food item listed too! :v)

  16. I’m looking forward to the more relaxed days of summer, too! I didn’t make the blue and white towels, but I made the strawberry one last year. I also wanted to let you know that the silhouette stamps are from a retired Stampin’ Up set that I got on Ebay called Thankful Thoughts.
